A contest of the fittest or strongest ? Nope..... A beauty contest then ? nope, nothing stands a chance against the beautiful Connie lines anyway. Last week we moved the DC4 outside the exposition hall and now it was time to move the Connie in after we removed the broken engine nr.3 first. Then the temptation of putting them close together became to big. So I climbed in a wobbly basked and raised myself 40 feet up to capture this glorious moment.

Good job! This shot looks like the 50's, classic prop planes, and even the terminal looks 50ish !
